this show was incredible pouring rain, eyes of the world to open - opposing the war mongers in the whitehouse at the moment they seized power, goood times!

I think that actually this set is kind of a shambles, and the sound is quite muddy.

positively one of the best stadium audience tapes out there. This is everything you want in audience. Great pull with the B&K's... wonderful.

Subject: Mature Grateful Dead
This recording epitomizes the band's coming of age. It is professionally played and presented. There is maturity in their ensemble. Coupled with one of the world's best sound systems and a heart of giving thereby allowing their fans to have a taping section, we have here a respectable show ~ one you could easily put on as background music for a celebration.

Being an old Jerry Moore friend I have due respect for the dauntless ghosts of concerts past and my hat is off to them. Tapers are a strange lot. Like the performers just before curtain you just don't talk to a taper or try to engage them into your space. You tend to treat 'em like cats in that to win their affections you don't reach out to them, you wait until they come to you ~ if they ever do. What this has to do with the review of this show I have lost track except to say that this I'm auditing is representative of an act that has reached its potential without blowing its wad.

This is not a dazzling performance. It is merely well-measured. There are few ragged edges. It's a polished sound without being totally ersatz. You can hear all the instrumentation. The vocals are bright.

And Phil is almighty Phil as I have stated countless times in reviews of 90-91 GD shows. He had a particular sound to me that had never been heard, and after those days, never heard again - consistently. In 2006, I met him again at a rehearsal in the Coca Cola Bottling Plant. I asked Phil about his bass tone of that era and he replied that he didn't recall that time, but that if I noticed, then he told me with a smile that he probably got tired of the tone of his axe and moved on. This is a no bullshit, shine-you-on statement. Perhaps it is factual and none the less, it does make sense. Lo, it makes perfect sense. I'm a musician and I get tired of playing my songs the same way all the time with the same tone every time. Besides, I have A.D.D. and cannot concentrate on playing anything the same way twice. Now, what this has to do with this review I've lost all track, but I think it has something to do with the fact that this is a lot of fun.

Reason I went with this tonite is because it is a Brennecke-Young AUD and also because I have been wanting to hear a latter version of New Speedway Boogie. This was a song Jerry didn't like to do because it was thought to be a bummer song about Altamont and the free Rolling Stones concert. A show they were scheduled to play but never played.

Jerry eventually realized that the jist of the song was not just necessarily about Altamont, but about life, in general. And his delving into as such evolves truly one of the greatest of all Hunter/Garcia Compositions and one not easily sung by Garcia after 1970.

So sad remarkably that this song is one of the most neglected of all GD songs. It could have been a monster.

Subject: Fantasic aud. of this peak show from '91.
Pouring rain at Giants Stadium and the Dead ope up with Eyes. Unreal.

Band is way on. Spot on aud. Better than any of the boards up here.
Reviewer: darazn1 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 12, 2008
Subject: Brilliant show, brilliant recording!
This concert may very well represent the very peak of the Hornsby era. Competent performance, adventurous setlist (even without the Dark Star teasing), and several ideas of what Dark Star could possibly become. Unfortunately, after this show, Dark Star was much more like a one-trick pony.

Nonetheless, this reminds me of the tapes I grew up on; first rate Audience; just like being there.

Had the band taken note, the Dark Star jam into drums could very well have been the blue-print for the latter age Dark Star approach. Fits the song to the groove of the band in the most natural way.

Dark Star aside, the whole show smokes!
